Space Shuttle RC Flying Models

Hey guys!

Pusher Prop brushless, EDF or whatever.....

You got to check this nice flying model out made of depron and most importantly powered by Brushless Pusher power system, RCPower setup, just one method of powering this model as an example.

This particular Video shows a model from RCPowers is nice and small and very easy to make and cost is next to nothing to get the project going and they list you with all the required items to make it happen. The plans are the only thing they sell at $9.99.

RCPowers link at:

Even though I do not like to see a Space Shuttle flying in a high Alpha manner like a 3D model, this video captures the required thoughts to make one think that those at RCPowers thought it out very well to bring us all a nice Space Shuttle RC Flying model that is compact and super easy to put together.

Here's the Video at YouTube:

Robert, loved the video production and very nice model. Still trying to get more efficiency out of my EJF ducted fan version.

Although we didn't have an airfoil, that appeared we did. I recently saw a good modification that guapoman2000 made on his with a root edge rib profile and then apply another 2mm depron over that would enhance the lift. keeping it lightweight and over powered will always be the best of course.

Robert77, Nice work. watching the video with high pucker factor on your first tests. Glad to see the successful results.

Regards,
